Yeah I've been a slacker lately on the updates. A lot has been going on and I haven't been very good about having the camera at the ready to capture all the fun moments.
My sister came to visit as a last minute trip courtesy of a birthday present from my Mom and Grandmother. During her visit, we also had a visit from our friends the Jones family from KC. That visit was a little last minute as well, but we were glad to see them again and to get to spend some time with them. See more about those visits on Isabella's blog here.
During their visits, I wanted to help them explore and enjoy the wonders of living in CO as much as possible and since that means getting outdoors, I was able to get in some good training. My knee is now paying the price for all that activity with the tendonitis on the right knee and the ongoing LCL issues on the left knee. A doctor's visit is in the near future for me!
Here's a summary of recent activities since the Firecracker 50 race:
Biked a little over 230 miles on trails
Ran with my sister on local trails

Climbed/ran Mt. Bierstadt <-- yes actually made it to the summit!
Went to a Police concert.

Hiked part of Mt Bierstadt and Deer Creek Canyon twice with Isabella in the backpack.

I'll admit, seeing the Police at Redrocks was pretty freaking cool, but like my friends (who had seen them before) mentioned, the concert was cool and the songs were good, but the band just didn't leave you feeling it. Because THEY didn't feel it. Honestly, there was no love there. The sound was great and the nostalgia was awesome (although it's not what it used to be) but there just wasn't the feeling of brotherhood amongst the band members. Maybe it was just me. Still.... what an experience!
